Stuffed Parmesan Mushrooms Recipe

Stuffed mushroom caps with mushroom stems, parsley and 2 kinds of cheese – fresh Parmigiano Reggiano and Mozzarella. You really do not need too many ingredients to make this light, filling and full of flavour party appetizer.

It is important to choose fresh and firm white or brown mushrooms. I bought this 20 pack at Costco.

I’m all pictures rather than words today.

Do not rinse them but rather wipe with damp paper towel. This way, mushrooms won’t soak up extra water and become soggy.

White mushroom caps with stems removed

Just pull out the stems and finely chop them. Including onions and parsley.

I could use many extra ingredients but I decided to keep this stuffed Parmesan mushrooms recipe simple. Really low key and use what you have on hand. No breadcrumbs either, I often don’t have them on hand.

You can use a tablespoon or two of mayo, cream cheese or sour cream instead of Greek yogurt. Anything that helps to bind the ingredients.

Mushroom stuffing in bowl

Mushrooms take only 20 minutes in the oven.

You will see the juices on a baking sheet and mushrooms will shrink in size and turn brown. That’s OK.

Unbaked stuffed mushrooms

They come out moist, meaty and full of flavour. Fresh Parmesan cheese adds that nice sharp flavour.

The key is to use fresh cheese and not the finely grated one. It takes these and parmesan roasted Brussels sprouts to a whole other level!

We like them warm or cold, as appetizer or side dish. These stuffed mushrooms make the tastiest leftovers.

Ingredients 
 

  • 20 large white mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion minced
  • 3 tbsp parsley minced
  • 1 small garlic clove minced
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp + a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup + 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated or finely shredded
  • 2 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
  • Cooking spray I use Misto

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and line large baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • With a damp paper towel, wipe down the mushrooms. Remove/pull out the stems and finely chop them. Set aside. Place mushroom caps on prepared baking sheet.
  • Preheat medium skillet on medium high and spray with cooking spray. Add onion and chopped mushroom stems and saute for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Add a pinch of salt.
  • Transfer to a medium bowl along with parsley, garlic, black pepper, 1/4 tsp salt, 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, Greek yogurt and mozzarella cheese. Mix with a fork.
  • Using a teaspoon, fill the mushroom caps with stuffing. Place a bit of remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese on top of each mushroom.
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot or cold. I like them both ways.

Notes

Store: Refrigerate covered for up to 2 days. Do not freeze. Can be prepared up to 48 hours in advance: refrigerate mushroom caps and stuffing separately, then fill and bake just before serving.

    My husband actually asked …. “you made these?!?” before devouring seconds. They were pretty darn good. I use recipes as a inspiration rather than an exact science. So, I did substitute Swiss cheese because it was what I had on hand and added an egg to get the mixture to stick together a bit while baking. These will be on regular rotation in our house from now on .
